    Hi All, I have a 2005 facelift 156 and recently had an odd problem develop with the indicators. They work fine for a bit but after driving for a while they stop flashing and instead stay lit constantly when they are selected. Right, left and hazards all do this. If you then turn the ignition...

    Hi all, Thought I'd post on here my findings about the clear indicator mod, and especially using LED indicator bulbs as I couldn't find anything about this in past posts. The clear lens mod has already been covered, found it pretty straight forward, just be slow and gentle :devious: As for...
  3. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi All Trying to help a friend get his S3 spider ready for an MOT. There's nothing happening with any of the indicators, so I suspect the flasher unit. No ticking noises from a flasher relay are evident. Before I go back to basics and start tracing the wiring back can anyone tell me where the...
  4. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi. Long time lurker on the forum reaching my wits end !!! I have a 2001 v6 spider been sat unused for a while. Sunny weather means getting the car on the road again. Problem - the hazard lights seem to have developed a mind of their own flashing randomly even when car is turned off. Problem...

    Just a heads up for you guys. Handbook states P21W bulb. It actually should be PY21W bulb (offset pins)
  6. Alfa 164 & 166
    If your indicators are not cancelling I have found the problem may not be the unit itself but rather the plastic cup like white plastic device right behind the steering wheel assembly. It seems to get loose on the shaft and can move sideways thus avoiding being "hooked" by the catches on the...
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I have tried and failed to remove the side indicators, I don’t want to force them too much so is there a knack to getting these things off easily? I just feel I’m going to snap something if I carry on.....any ideas?
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    If one goes to a site like DC Performance for instance one can find a wide selection of suspension upgrade kits for the GT and 147. my GT has had the lower spring supports on both rear shocks give way due to rust in the last 5000 miles and I've had to weld them back up and as the car has now...
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    As per the title really, I replaced the side lights with LED canbus safe ebay jobbies and all seemed fine, I did get a light warning time to time but I could live with that. Recently I fitted a HID kit (not canbus safe I believe). The lights power up and are a massive improvement however the...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys, I've recently fitted a new battery to my GT since the old one died a death (probably from me not driving the car enough). For some reason the indicators have stopped flashing when arming/disarming the car. They still flash when I pop the boot using the fob. I read something about...
  11. Alfa GTA
    Do people upgrade to led bulbs for the smaller bulbs on the car to reduce servicing failure rates and if so what types are you using and how do you find them.
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I know they're P21W as opposed to PY21W in the front, but this only defines base and brightness. Are they P21W amber or P21W clear?
  13. Alfa Giulietta
    My Right side indicator repeater decided to stop working a few months ago, and now the left one is missing 2 LED's from 3.. anyone else had this issue or am i massively unlucky? Sent from Free App
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Will these fit on a non-black line GT? On alfaworkshop the blackline and std ones look different shape.
  15. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I've been fiddling around installing a radio into the spider. Last night I was struggling to get the console panels to fit and meet up with the bolt at the dash. Had them loosely fitted and on the way to the MOT noticed both indicators not working. Any ideas? Cheers in advance.
  16. Alfa 164 & 166
    So today without warning the indicators started to "go slow" that is work at half speed on both sides and then nothing. I've already checked to see if the heater matrix is leaking and that's not the culprit, the ecu's and relays have been bagged as best they can in such a confined space. Being...
  17. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Had this problem with the car ever since I bought it but have decided that the time has come to get it sorted. Can anyone tells me what the mechanism is and why this happens? Is it a straightforward ring on the steering column (as on many cars) or something typically Alfa and more complex? All...
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello all, Basically I've had this 'issue' for a while, but it's getting on my nerves now. Every time I approach a round about or junction I click the indicator on (left or right), and within 2-3 seconds i.e the point where I reach the junction or begin turning, the indicator cancels itself...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello there, My 147 2.0L T-Spark 2001's Indicators- they are silent. ! Like no tick; nothing. Absolutely silent. This may be a dream for some people and it has been this way since I've had it. The thing is in more than one occasion I have indicated as I am so thorough in doing so and when...
